Also known in winter as Bitter Creek Cirque, the route up to Jumpoff Ridge follows an abandoned logging road to the ridgeline.
From the trailhead proceed up the abandoned logging road. At 3.2 miles cross Bitter Creek, and continue another 0.8 miles to the end of the road in a cleared area. The way is very brushy, though relatively easy to follow in summer. Be sure to wear long pants until the thorny brush is cleared.
There is a nice viewpoint near Bitter Creek, which is a good turnaround point for those not heading for the ridge.
This road is scheduled for road-to-trail conversion by the Forest Service; the project is on hold due to lack of funding.
